The m4 files used for generating zabbix' configure script hard code the
locations of iconv.h and pthread.h. This will stop working with
non-glibc libcs as well as a glibc that fully moves headers to
/usr/include/<triplet> (#798955). zabbix will fail to build as is.
Please consider applying the attached patch.
